News and Rumors / Re: New Video for GOOYOW

The comments on the YouTube page are... relentlessly abusive. Wow. I can't imagine there hasn't been an element of orchestration behind it.

As for the video, I'm behind all the politics and stuff but I think of this as a more personal song, so was rather hoping they'd release that fireworks-on-the-beach thing. Ah well.

Time to release Lights of Home!

Which venue and how old are your kids?  The reason I ask is the for the O2 kids have to be 16 years old to go in GA, for Manchester it is 14 years old.  I know that during I&E many people took children under 16 into GA at the O2 as security were way too busy to check any form of ID. 

My 12 year old daughter looks 16 but I have decided not to take the risk.  My wife is not keen on GA either.

At Twickenham, I saw one guy hurry what I believe was his son out of the front 15 rows of GA. The lad's face said it all.  I hope they stood further back with more space and that it wasn't too much of an ordeal.  The lad looked around 15 or 16 but hard to tell.  It can be quite frightening for them - at Twickenham the first 15 rows were pretty packed, enough to feel panicky and claustrophobic.  It wasn't a crush though (I've been in one of those when I was 19), but enough.  It's hard to put the correct age limit on, depending on the venue and the type of crowd.  Maybe Manchester isn't so 'pushy'?

News and Rumors / U2 and Aslan's differences down the years

Here's a story and clip from Friday's Late Late Show aired on RTE in Ireland.  Aslan are national treasures in Ireland and barely known outside.  It's no co-incidence that they and U2 come from the same part of Dublin and both were vying for recognition outside Ireland.  We know who were the most successful, but this story is full of amusing anecdotes of their rivalry in the 1980's, and how Bono eventually made a very kind gesture when Christy Dignam, Aslan's singer, became very unwell a few years ago.  There's a clip included of U2's tribute to Aslan.  Clearly the boys have all made up now, and I wish Christy all the best for his forthcoming medical treatment.

Judging by the lack of replies I must be one of the few who still likes buying cd's. Nobody else experiencing the same problem? Did U2 cheap out??

I've come around to buying CDs, but at this point they're releasing very few of them, so it's hard to keep the interest up too much.
Ok,I think. But you didn't answer my original question. Are you experiencing the same thing with not getting name of album or names of songs,in other words no gracenote program imbedded into CD.

Looks like Dubiln might be in the middle instead of at the end.

I wish they would just announce all of them.  It helps plan if you are making a vacation of it.

Tours / Re: New Zealand and Australia left out again

If they are indeed coming to Australia/NZ, It won't be until Nov/Dec, or early 2019 more likely.  Thus, no reason to make an announcement yet.

If they do arenas, theyd probably do 4 nights in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland.  At least 2 in Brisbane and Perth, if not more.  At minimum you've got 16 shows there.  That would take a very solid month for U2.  So if they got there in mid November, that'd put them as finishing the Australian leg right before Christmas.  Then maybe throw in some Asian shows in after the new year?  Or just do Australia and Asia in early 2019?  Timing is key here.  This December it will be 8 years since their last visit.  Almost as long as the gap from Feb 98 to Nov 06.

Wow. The comments on U2's facebook post of this video are extremely negative. Not good for business.

Yeah, bad actors and bad actresses commenting on facebook currently, or semi-fans that actually never truly understood U2. And I think the band already said they don't have to do it for the money.

Should I make it a lyric video?
